A Quote by Sydney J. Harris on achievement, curiosity, god, laziness, energy, mankind, men, and rest

The generality of mankind is lazy. What distinguishes men of genuine achievement from the rest of us is not so much their intellectual powers and aptitudes as their curiosity, their energy, their fullest use of their potentialities. Nobody really knows how smart or talented he is until he finds the incentives to use himself to the fullest. God has given us more than we know what to do with.

Sydney J. Harris (1917 - 1986)
